1. Amazing Grace
With just 26 million dollars in box office, Amazing Grace isn't a commercial success. However, this movie is a quite impressive and moving one. Amazing Grace mainly focuses on the politic battles between William Wilberforce and the parliament members. To make transatlantic slave trades illegal, Wilberforce has tried whatever he can. Though Wilberforce is viewed as a geek by all politicians, he never gives up.
On watching Amazing Grace, you will not only be moved by the theme song but also by the spirits of Wilberforce. As for Mr. Holmes, he acts as the youngest British Prime Minister in history William Pitt. In the movie, though Pitt supports Wilberforce, he cares more about his political career than the fate of slaves. Luckily, Mr Holmes successfully presents us the inner struggles of Pitt with his performance.
2. War Horse
As the latest movie presented by famous director Steven Spielberg, War Horse gained great success with over 100 million dollars income and several nominations for Academy Awards. War Horse mainly tells several stories about World War II from the perspective of a horse. In the movie, the horse witnesses the both cruelty of the war and the love and friendship of mankind.
Mr Holmes acts as a British soldier who happens to be the second owner of the horse in War Horse. However, he soon loses his life in a careless and even fool attack. However, Mr. Holmes has successfully impressed us with the image of a friendly and gentle patriot who is also a horse lover in limited time.
How popular is Sherlock? When Sherlock was available, news about Sherlock was tweeted for thousand times.

Pretty soon, BBC will present us another three episodes.
Sherlock focuses on the adventure of Sherlock Holmes, the most famous detective created by Conan. However, unlike the novel, the cases in Sherlock occur in the modern time. With the excellent performance of Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock gained great successes in all those years. Though the image of Mr. Holmes in Sherlock is quite different from that of the novel, Benedict's bolding attempt was praised as innovative.
Those are the three movies presented by Mr. Holmes. Though Benedict only acted as supporting roles in War Horse and Amazing Grace, he successfully impressed us with his acting skills. With Sherlock, Mr. Holmes had pushed his acting career to a higher level.
